The final version of Phantasy Star Universe is ending its online services at 24:00 JST on September 27, 2012. (Following the closure, only the PS2 version of story mode will be available.) Here's the schedule of the last two months.

August 28, 2012 (17:00 JST)
* GUARDIANS License sales end
* Game key, Illuminus game key sales end

August 30, 2012 (after maintenance) - September 27, 2012 (24:00 JST)
* Free premium course period

September 27, 2012 (24:00 JST)
* PSU ID creation ends
* GUARDIANS Cash sales end
* Services end

Free premium course period
* Everyone will be able to play with premium course after maintenance ends on August 30, 2012, even if you have not purchased a GUARDIANS License.

Remaining GUARDIANS Cash
* Any leftover GUARDIANS Cash on your account following the end of services can be transferred over to Arks Cash for use in PSO2. WebMoney will be refunded. Details concerning the GC to AC conversion and WebMoney refunds will be announced after service ends.

Automatically renewing GUARDIANS Licenses
* Monthly recurring GUARDIANS License charges will only go through August. No funds will be withdrawn in September.

SonicTeam would like to offer their apologies for such short notice on this. (Personally, it was a big surprise seeing this so soon. I fully expected PSU to continue on for a while alongside PSO2... only with bare-bones updates like PSOBB did when PSU came out.) However, there is still more to come for this game. The 6th Anniversary Thanks Festa is still scheduled for release, so stay tuned for details on that.

Wow, I honestly thought the Japanese version of PSU would be up for 3 years or more longer. This is a very unexpected turn of events...

Kinda disappointed that there won't be S5's.

It's also a stab in the ass that you can play this version for free on the last month, but not the localized version.
